Contribution X and Medic are 8th Platoon. Grimy Underground Hip Hop from the streets of Long Beach, Featuring: Christ Apostle, Bomshot, Rasul Allah (Lost Children of Babylon), and Portarock.

Originally formed with numerous members from the Los Angeles area, 8th Platoon is now comprised of Contribution X (MC) and Medic aka Habitual (producer). The album is heavily reflective of the streets of Long Beach and the countless shows/ciphers the crew has rocked over the years. The lyrical presence over the grimy beats provided by Medic, is reminiscent of late 90's era Hip Hop where the art of rhyme'n, dj'n, break'n, and graffiti was a way of life.
